There are more pictures over at Vonna's blog of the little Pif gifts I sent to her. (I failed to get my crummy camera to take decent pictures this time, but thanks to Nicole, I may be learning.)
I think Vonna really liked it, even though she forgot a PiF was coming her way. :) It is the With My Needle pinkeep and scissor fob from the JCS 2006 Ornament magazine, stitched with an orangey-pink DMC variegated floss that reminded me of summer and Vonna's great personality. The pinkeep is stitched over one with an alphabet on the front and on the back I added our initials and the phrase "pins for thee." The fob includes a quaker flower and bird motif and Vonna's monogram. I also had fun selecting paint colors to create some matching pins for this project. The paint dried a little too matte, so I dipped them in a clear acryllic gloss on the second coat to create a little sheen.
My gift to Sharon is out in the mail and Wendy's is almost finished. I also have a surprise PiF going to a special someone since only 3 ladies signed up under me.
I have created a rotation for new projects and old wip's. Tonight I plan to start the newest BBD Loose Feathers, "Awake the Dawning Day." This will be an SAL with some lovely ladies from The Love of Stitching yahoo group. I have a little something special planned for my blog as I stitch along on this, more details to come.
I'm also trying to finish up the Jane Austen Sampler, a couple of Christmas ornaments, and an embarrasingly old UFO, Quaker Garden.
Ornaments: Rejoice Ornie and then 2006 Annual PS Santa
At Home with Jane Austen (goal is finish by June 21)
Awake the Dawning Day
I hope all my stitching pals out there are having a fantastic week. Thanks to everyone for stopping by and thanks especially to my new readers. If I've not made it by your blogs to say thank you, I will soon!
